  1. Salaam, All Ibaadat should be solely for Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) also called 'Qurbatan Elallah'. You can keep fast any day as Qurbatan Elallah.

  2. If for example your sitting with a Muslim and he starts to do gheeba, your are obligated under the wajib duty of amr bil maroof wa nahi anil munkar to ask him to either stop doing gheeba or to remove yourself if he does not stop. This is regardless of if he will be happy or sad about you saying that. This is the truth of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) given through the holy Qur'an.

  5. إِنَّا هَدَيْنَاهُ السَّبِيلَ إِمَّا شَاكِرًا وَإِمَّا كَفُورًا God allows our actions to happen whether good or bad. The origin of goodness belongs to Him therefore every good is from Him. Every badness or evil emerges from Kufr I.e., from negating or refusing the divine commands therefore it is ours.

    When there is plurality in our world view...is called mushrik. When we see Only Allah exist...Tawheed. It is not that we are Mushrik in the sense that we belief in many Gods. Just a term for those belief in pure Tawheed

    Salam, Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) created stars, moon, air, water, atoms, all physical phenomena through stages of time. Then he create nafs so plants, animals, humans become alive. By nature, all nafs and physical entities will act accordingly to directions set by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). By nature, animals will fight for survival. So do human beings. They fought and killed by their nature. Nothing wrong. The whole universe was static in term of obedience to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Even Angles were static in status. Then Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَا

  10. Brother, you should quote the entire section: One of the important issues in the discussion of Tawhid (monotheism) is in relation to Tawhid-e-Af’Ali (belief in the unity of the actions of Allah ((سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى))) and if one possesses the correct understanding of this issue, then it would have a profound impact on one's life. The belief in 'Unity of the actions of Allah ((سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى))' informs us that everything and everyone which exists in the entire universe - even the leaves of a tree which move with the passing breeze - originate from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ ت

    If I say All Good is from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and All Evil is from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), does it not contradict to the verse? What comes to you of good is from Allah, but what comes to you of evil, [O man], is from yourself.

    You statement contradicts the Qur'an that says in 2:156 Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un (Arabic: إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ‎) If everything is Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), why we need to return to Him ? The return to Him (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), according to your statement is not needed because everything is already Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and humans are not entity by it own.

Another reference from Qur'an is the verse of chapter 18: فَوَجَدَا عَبْدًا مِّنْ عِبَادِنَا آتَيْنَاهُ رَحْمَةً مِنْ عِندِنَا وَعَلَّمْنَاهُ مِن لَّدُنَّا عِلْمًا 18:65 In this story, the point is when Hazrat Khidr is mentioning the ta'veel of his actions to Prophet Musa ((عليه السلام)) and said the following words in the end: رَحْمَةً مِّن رَّبِّكَ وَمَا فَعَلْتُهُ عَنْ أَمْرِي 18:82 How he has said that he has not done anything on his own accord? He did hole in the boat, killed a child, repaired a wall, for making hole in the boat he used the word فَأَرَدْتُ (I wished), for

  15. I can't say anything about Syeda Fatima (s.a). There are verses in Qur'an for which we have different interpretations, and those interpretations causes me to just keep quite. For instance, Laylatul Qadr has been mentioned as Syeda Fatima (s.a), then there is a verse which says "Laylatul Qadre Khayrun Min Alfe Shahr", interestingly there is another interpretation of a verse where Imams have been mentioned as "Shahr" (months) إِنَّ عِدَّةَ الشُّهُورِ عِندَ اللّهِ اثْنَا عَشَرَ شَهْرًا فِي كِتَابِ اللّهِ So I feel appropriate to not compare their status at all.

  20. There is precedent for both attitudes in the sources. Practically speaking, I try to have a Shi'a-first policy when it comes to charities, good works, job hookups, and volunteer work. If there are no Shi'as, then I try to find Muslims in general. If no Muslims, then Kitabis; etc. No question that anyone should be allowed to come to our mosques and community events, but not as leaders. There are some groups, especially Orthodox Christian, who really try to limit their community to their ethnic group. It gets to a point of `asabiyya, nationalism, racism, and elitism. Islam is primarily a re

  22. No doubt that the MB has inspired a lot of extremist offshoots, but the average "everyday" MB-supporter is a suit-and-tie engineer with a light beard, enjoys democracy, political correctness, etc. People like Jonathan Brown and Tariq Ramadan. American conservatives tend to fear the MB not because of al-Qaeda and Hamas, but because they represent an influential sub-section of the politically-active Muslim diaspora. MB immigrants helped found organizations like MSA and CAIR.

  23. Muslim Brotherhood is not for free speech and democracy at all. So much terrorist groups worldwide have gotten their influence from the Brotherhood. Under Morsi in Egypt, there were many reports of corruption and human rights violations. And that is a Brotherhood regime. Syria has banned the Brotherhood for a reason, they are a major source of imstability and terrorism throughout the ME and beyond.

    If she is given a second chance, it should be only on the condition of facing trial for her crimes of providing help and support for international criminals. Apologizing doesn't undo. If she's genuinely regretful of her decision, she needs to show it through her actions.

  26. Hopefully these people get the help they need. Not sure how people deem what's "absolutely necessary" or not. Looks like the duty for their care will be up to non-Muslims. If there were only Muslims around this area who interpreted rulings as stated above, I guess these ill people would be out of luck.

Woke up after sehri though and haven’t eaten or drunken anything, but then I just remembered I kind of wanted to keep a fast today. Can I just keep a fast today if I continue to not eat or drink even though I didn’t really have a clear intention beforehand?

  35. I understand that we all have different political views (so I will be getting many "respectfully disagree" hands), but IMO none of his policies are compatible with Islam. Distribution of wealth is Haram. Also, terrible for the economy. Although they all support progressive tax, Bernie is the most we extreme. Republicans want to lower tax (despite being quite statist), but Libertarians are the only one who want to reform to a flat tax. Libertarians have no shot at winning though.

    Zina is too a action. If done with wrong person (other than wife) is sin. And with wife is sawab. Now again action itself is not wrong rather inappropriate selection is wrong.

  39. Ok so what? This is a Shia forum. Most of us believe in Ali's status, his noble role in establishing Islam, and he was the Prophet's right hand man. But im not going to worship him, I'm not going to call out his name for help. Im not going to lie about him or give him divine attributes.

  41. @eThErEaL @Hadi5 Salaam. You are trying to apply philosophical theory into practical reality. It works if you talk about Allah being All-Hearing and All-Seeing. Is Allah All-Smelling meaning he can smell therefore we can smell? Is Allah All-Touching meaning He touches so we can touch? If this doesn't make sense, then is Allah All-Digesting therefore we can digest?

    When a person does something according to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) instructions and His Wills, his hand becomes His (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) Hand. These type of actions belong to Prophets and Ahlul Bayt. His words become His Words. His victory is His (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) victory. When we ...as laymen does something...Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) will judge our intention.

However at the same time, we understand that He has given us freedom in our life and has not compelled us to perform acts. May be you got it .What ever action you do is Allahs action .
